Love will not heal me by Anuoluwapo Kehinde
Love will not heal me.
Wine and dine me only on the good days,
Leave me crying on the days I feel most broken,
Don’t say you love me.
When you ignore my calls because I am being emotional,
I hope you don’t ignore my last call.
I may never love me.
So don’t question my need for therapy,
Reassurance is my cup of tea and I’ll drown in it.
Trust and love aren’t equal.
I guard my heart and create obstacles,
Words and actions of love aren’t trustworthy,
If the walls I built are too high to hear or see.
